Purton can produce a Triple Trio Smile on his return

A re-energised Zac Purton returns from a two-meeting suspension on Saturday and should salute in the final leg of the Sha Tin Triple Trio on the Paul O'Sullivan-trained Celestial Smile.

O'Sullivan's divine touch

Paul O'Sullivan jokes that he is always relieved to get his 13th win of the season out of the way - passing the criteria for wins required by a trainer each term - and meaning he doesn't have to answer to the licensing committee in the off-season. After Jade Pins pushed O'Sullivan into "safe" territory, the New Zealander only had to wait 30 minutes for his 14th - and it was with a progressive type that seems destined to provide even more wins - Divine Diya.
